TCM

traditional Chinese medicine.

traditional Chinese medicine (TCM)

the diverse body of medical theory and practice that has evolved in China, comprising four branches: acupuncture and moxibustion, herbal medicine, qi gong, and tui na. Although TCM encompasses a variety of theory and practice, all of its forms share certain underlying characteristics. The body and mind are considered together as a dynamic system subject to cycles of change and affected by the environment, and emphasis is on supporting the body's self-healing ability. Fundamental to TCM are the yin-yang principle and the concept of basic substances that pervade the body: qi, jing (essence), and shen (spirit), collectively known as the three treasures, and the blood (a fluid and material manifestation of qi) and body fluids (which moisten and lubricate the body). Disease arises from a disturbance of qi within the body, the particular pathological process depending on the location of the disturbance; causes are classified into three groups, external (which are environmental), internal (emotions), and miscellaneous (such as diet, fatigue, or trauma). Diagnosis is by visual assessment, listening and smelling, questioning, and palpation; a single biomedical disease may be associated with a large number of TCM diagnoses, and one TCM diagnosis may encompass a number of biomedical diseases. Once a diagnosis is established, therapy aims at restoring the body's homeostasis by treating the root cause of the disease.

Patient discussion about TCM

Q. What credibility does TCM has and where? My brother is an alcoholic and I want to try Chinese medicine for him as a first step instead of trying other systems first and try Chinese medicine if the other systems fail. But my neighbor suggests me to try other system of medicine first and if that doesn’t work to try Chinese medicine as the last remedy. Why did he say so? What credibility does TCM has and where? Please give me motivating answers.

A. I was an alcoholic and after diagnosis, my mom referred me to TCM immediately and with the treatment for about 4 months I started to feel well and soon it helped me in reducing alcohol. She choose TCM and not any other session and medicine for me…I don’t know what would have happened if I would have approached any other system of medicine and therapies. Chinese system of medicine made us happy with the results. My personal advice to you to is to have faith in one system of medicine and follow that system whole-heartedly.
